Ill. MONTAN..ANs will be interested in the handsomely illustrated article on placer mining oontributed to the Cosmopolitan Magazine for August by Joseph P. Reed. It is accurate and interesting. THn republican national committee starts the campaign of 1892 with a large number of the campaign bills of 1888 unpaid. They are as nothing, how ever, in comparison with the stack of unredeemed pledges that will be left over when Mr. Harrison's term ends. IT is said that the grain yield of South Dakota this year will average 81,000,000 to each county. This seems big until you come to figure that the mineral output of Montana will average nearly $4,000,000 per county, to say nothing of the wool and cattle profits. AN Ohio judge moved his court into an opera house in order to gratify a cu rious public, who wanted to hear an in teresting case. He is being severely criticized for the indecorum by the com munity, but in some parts of the coun try there are judges whose performances would only befit a circus tent. IT is really unkind of Col. Dudley, after the Harrison organs have so staunchly defended his Indiana cam paign methods, to declare that he is un qualifiedly for Blaine in 1892. The or gans might have spared making them selves ridioulous had they known where Dudley was going to land. THE New York World, apropos of Sen ator Quay's resignation of the chair magship of the republican national committee, expresses surprise that Mr. Quay should give up a good thing. Per haps Mr. Quay knows What a good thing isn't, when he sees it. It attikes us it is a case of rat and sinking ship. CHIEF JUSTICE FvLLEn is the recipi ent of many pleasant courtesies from the bench and bar of Tacoma and Seattle during his vacation on the coast. He will soon return to his duties in the east. Why don't our members of the bar and other citizens invite him to visit Helena on his return and give him a cordial Montana welcome? SUPPOSE our school trustees should contribute half the money for a public library building on the high school grounds, that our citizeps subscribe the other half, and that only the walls and roof are up next year when the teach ers' association meets, thus forming a room in which the assembled thousands could meet? JoHN. WANAMAKER may not be a great statesman, but he has built up the greatest retail trade in the United States by a liberal use of printer's ink. As the result of twenty-five years' ex perience he says: "I never in my life used such a thing as a poster or a hand bill. I would not give an advertisement in a newspaper of five hundred circula tion for 5,000 dodgers or pasters." Wan namaker's great pocket-book is due to his great head. HOSPITALITY and plenty of it should be every householders' sentiment during the present week when the preliminary canvas is made to see how many teach ers can be entertained next year. For the most part our citizens are showing commendable public spirit. We should have data to convince the visiting com mittee of the association that the pri vate homes of Helena will take care of 8,000 visitors. Mr. Muth will start his canvas of the city to-morrow morning. Be ready for him. SECRiTARY SMAI.rLEY, of the repub linan state committee of Minnesota, after a close computation based upon percentages, thinks that of the alliance party's vote in that state last year 54 per cent. was cast for Mr. Harrison in 1888 and about 40 per cent. for Mr. Cleveland-in other words about four teen republicans have joined the alli ance party to six democrats. Doubtless this same proportion of about one and one-half to one would hold good in the other agricultural states. The moral of this observation liPs in its application to the contest of 1892. As sooN as it is settled that we are to have the meeting of the National Ed ucational association in H]elena an im petus ought to be given to the move ment for a summer musical festival next year. We have already pointed out the advantages of Helena forsuch a festival. Our summer climate is delightful; we are midway on the overland journey across the continent, and would got the full flow of tourist travel; the leading musicians of the country could be most readily engaged fur a summer season, and we shall have people enough here inxt year in any event to furnish big audiences for every performance. This is a matter that is worth serious consid eration and early action. 'Ti.r New Northwest makes this true d.agrosis of the condition of the muss back grumbler, who afflicts that comi munity as he does other spots not re mote from Helena: "The pessimist is hal crank and half coward. Unless all t butter is on his bread he is ready to swear that there is neither bread nor butter in the coun try. If he happens to lose a spavined broncho, the conviction becomes at mania that horse thieves have driven every hoot out of the country. It his own quartz assays a trace of disappointment to the ton it is a settled fact, to his no tion, that every mine in the state has petered out. lie is incapable of taking a broad view of affairs and is at once a bigoted, Irrepressible nuisance and breeder of discontent." Give the growl ers a chance. This will be their last season for some time. Next year they will disappear beneath the tide of pros perity that will roll over the country. GxnnRAL ]FANC'I A. WA.,c.r, the eminent statistician, as the result of years of study of the census figures and the character, of our national growth, concludes that the time has come when we must cease, what he calls our indis criminate hospitality, and digest and as similate the population we have already taken in. We have received five and one-quarter million of foreigners duging the past ten years, he says, and have earned the right to say to the rest of the world, "Give us a rest." The showing that Gen. Walker makes of the bad character of much of the re cent immigration is alarming enough t and there is no doubt that we need efficient restrictive legislation. But be. cause our hospitality has hitherto been indiscriminating it does not seem to us that it should be followed by indiscrim- m inating legislation. Gen. Walker prob- ti ably is influenced by his Massachusetts o environment. Let him come to Mon- e5 tana and travel over an empire larger l than the New England states and New k York combined, in which only 150,000 people are adding nearly $100,000,000 a year to the national wealth, and where 5,000,000 people could find comfortable w homes and profitable employment, and a he would seriously doubt whether the 0 tinme had come for absolutely barring 1 foreign immigration. That we need intelligently regulated and directed P immigration everybody concedes, but to there is still plenty of intelligence, bi brawn and thrift, especially in England It and northern Europe, todraw upon, and vi It would be short-sighted policy to shut hi aut without discrimination the peoples di 'rom whom we have drawn some of our a oast American stock. We certainly it save room in America yet for many * nillions of industrious peoplQ. Let us hi sot discourage the right soft from comrn- o ng because ye have had a few millions fr >f an undesirable sort. of THE SHADOWGRAPHER. The traveler from Helena to New York if he travels by the Chicago, St. Paul and Kanssa City will ride through three states where he cannot buy a drink on the train, North Dakota, Iowa and Ohio. In the first two states there is an absolute prohibitory law, which, however, does net.always pro litbit except on the train. In Ohio there is a high license law which requires a license so high that the railway companies prefer prohibition. As may be imagined the din ing ear eenductor in these states is treated with the most delicate consideration fol lowed by a pleasant request which is politely declined. Then there is a formal demand and a firm refusal and finally the siege ends with a grand bluff and final capitu lation on the part of the thirsty traveler. The dining car conductor in North Dakota is a bigger man than Henry Villard. He can be neither corrupted nor seduced and he is quite aware of his importance. When the west bound train crosses the Red river he rises two inches in heisht, his shoulders are thrown back and he changes his cap for another two sizes larger. He knows that the poor travelers will come over to his side of the fence before the day is over and he appreciates the value of a cinch. Among the travelers on the overland express from St. Paul last week were three raw British tourists and a ser vant quite as raw as his master They were very English and very fresh and labored under the hallucination that they were the only passengers on the train. Their conversation was confined to cries of "'Awkins bring the brandy and soda," and 'Awkits produced at frequent intervals until all were well sizzled. Then they retired after a round criticism of these "bloody American railway carriages." Whatever their faults may be they certainly were good drinkers. Unfortunately they arose in the morning and found the hamper empty. Then 'Awkins returned from the dining car to order drinks he brought the information that none could be purchased. Sir Harold Dugildiddy then rushed in hot haste to the dining car, followed by his two friends. "Me good fellow," he said to the con ductor, "My man 'Awkins says we can't have brandy and soda. How is that?" "That is because we are in North Dako ta," explained the conductor. "And are we not in the associated states yet?" "Yes, you are in the United States, but you are also in North Dakota." "And what is North Dakota?" "That is a state." "Well, me good man, then give us three brandys and soda, and be soon please." "Look here, you chappies are getting too Ray. Now you don't get any drinks till we get over the Montana line, see?" "But, me good follow, we can't wait." "Well, you'll have to drink alkaline water to-day. I guess that's good enou5.h for you anyway." "But, you impudent man, why can we not have drinks? We have money." "Well, because the law here is agin it- see? Now. don't bother me any more." "Such bloody impudence from a railway guard!" piped in another of the trio. "I cawot undlerstand it." "And I thought thia United States was one country," said another. "Well, this America is a bloody poor lawnd anyhow," said the first speaker asI they tramped back to the sleeper. "Wouldn't there jays cook you?" was ther concluding remark of the conductor to the head waiter as the dialogue was finished. Mr. Henry A. Itoot, the versatile and genial representative of the D)avis will con testants, came over from Butte yesterday. He says there is absolutely io truth in the rumor that Andrew ,. Davis loft a will. A Helena mother who thinks her boy ist as b: ight as any of thenm writes the follow - ing letter to the ihadowgra.,hor: "I nutice that you sometimes print smart sayings of little boys and girls, so I thought 1 would tell you of a semnark of stir little Oeorgie. lHe is only five years old, but his j - papa and, I think he is the smartest boy of his age we ever saw. My husband says It Georgia forgets more while he is salees le than the rest of the family knows. Two is weeks before the circus came he looked at the bill boards every day andspelled out all the words until he knew pretty well what a d circus was like. Well his papa took him to a the circus and he had a splendid time, but y said he was disappointed in one thing. n "'What is that, George.' said papa. t "'Why I looked at all the animals.' re plied Georgie, 'and never saw the hippo drome.' Mr. Shadowgrapher, don't you think that was a ncute remark for a flve-year g old boy?" a Yes, fond mother, you should be proud of d that boy. If there are other bright boys 1- and girls in Helena, the Shadowgrapher t will be glad to print their sayings. Y Lieut. Bruce Wallace, of the Tenth cav alry, has lately enjoyed some degree of ex citement incident to frontier life. His many friends in Helena will be glad to know that though exposed for a time to hostilities he escaped injury. West of Kearn's canyon, in Arizopa, is a series of Moqui and Araybie Indian villages extend' I ing over a distance of twenty-five miles. The Indians have lately shown signs of hos tilities, and troops were sent out to arrest the leaders and bring them in. Liont. Wallace in charge of two guns and a de tachment of troops was with the party. After hard riding they reached one of the hostile villages and sent word to the In dians to surrender. Five of the chiefs ao cepted the invitation. One of them made what he thought a sufficient explanation when he said they intended to fight, but the sun did not shine right to make their war medicine. Therefore there was no al ternative but to surrender. The Indians made a complete surrender and several were arrested and taken to the camp. The lieutenant writes that the Moquis have many charac teristics of the Zunis. They are industri ous and the lowlands are covered with their corn fields. They are also very successful in raising fruits. Each family is said to keep a two years' supply of food in the house, in which respect they have the ad vantage of many white families. Franies Murphy is a frequent and always welcome visitor to newspaper offices. He id an interesting talker. He has a vast fund of information at his command as the re suit of years of work on two continents. Then, too, he has an original style of ex premaion and usually leaves a terse remark not soon forgotten. Last evening he was telling about hard eases and how they were brought around to the blue ribbon brigade. It reminded him of the story of a new con vert to the Baptist faith. The fellow had been a very wicked sinner, in deed, and his conversion was considered a great victory. In order to clinch matters it was decided to baptize him immediately, soe he was takendown to the river for im mersion. After he was in the water up to his neck and had been dipped, one of his old cronies who was watching the ceremony from the bank, yelled: "You'd better an chor him all night if you want to make a good job of it." Colonel James Sullivan smiles now-a days whenever you meet him. If you ask him the cause of this pleasantry he will tell you that it is because Helena will have the next convention of the A. O. U. W. The colonel did magnificent work at Detroit for which he was well equipped. Hiahigh standing among Montanians, his interest in the order in which he has always been a eenspicuous figure, combined with ease of speech and attractive personal qualities to adapt him for this difficult work. THE NEW COSMOPOLITAN. It Is Ready for Business Under the Man ageinent of Garrett & Burgard. To-day the Cosmopolitan European hotel and cafe, under the management of Garrett & Burgard, will be prepared to take care of its many friends in the best sort of style. Two weeks ago the work of remodel ing the hotel was begun and while there re mains a few finishing touches, it is prao tically completed. The most noticeable change is in the front, magnificent oak and plate glass in the dining room taking the place of the old windows and door. In this respect it is by far the finest cafe in town. The bar has also been moved from the rear to the front of the building, the billiard room and private card rooms occupying the the rear. A cosy and convenient reading room has been made in the front also. The halls have been beautifully painted and papered, and altogether the dining room, office and bar will compare favorably with any in the city. Another improvement is that the dining room is separated from the Jeitohen by a wide pantry, insurisuring guests from the annoyance arising from odors from the kitchen. The cafe will be the largest, best lighted and most desirable in the city. Another feature which will be appreciated is that providing private dining rooms on the parlor floor. There are four of these, finely furnished, lighted by electricity, easy of access. A dumb waiter runs from the kitchen to a pantry on this floor, so that the service will be as satisfactory as in the regular dining room, but with perfect pri vacy. New carpets, shades, neatly papered, and other betterments in the hotel proper indicate that the lessees have confidence in the city and also in their ability to please their patrons. The hotel will be run strictly on the En ropean plan. RHooms will cost from 50 cents to $1 a day, while in the cafe you pay for what you order. 'there will be a regu lar dinner every day from 12 to five at .)0 cents, and cormnntation tickets will be sold, Helena has never before had a tirst class European hotel. and this is just what Gar rett and Burgard propose to run. The cafe will be kept up in the best style, end will undoubtedly draw a large city trade. In order to keep the dining room light and airy. no boxes have been put in it, the pri vate dining rootus upstairs more than answering the requirements in that rn spect. The first regular meal will be dinner to day, from 12 to five, and it goes without saving that umauv people will slow their appreciation of the entl,rorise displaywd by the les'ees in giv cig Ielena a first-class lEuropean hotul anrd cafe. aI.RIado fine cldik hatean skirts, $1.i5 and $2.50 at Fowles' ('ash tice. fitoThe lies Ilive for bargains in ladis' vests.
